I have been having a hard time finding pool workouts that are long enough to prepare me for the long distance open water swims that I am planning this summer. Surfing around on Active.com I found a pretty good selection of workouts for distance swimmers. Here are a few of them:
Distance Set From Open Water Champ Kalyn Keller
8,000 Meters With South African star Ryk Neethling
Try The Grand Prix With Olympian Cristina Teuscher
I have been doing the second of the three workouts for the past month or so on my long swim days with shorter variations during the week. It is challenging, but splits up the yardage enough that it doesn't get boring.
What are your favorite high yardage workouts?
